Lake Erie Agriculture Demonstrating Sustainability (LEADS)

Thank you for your interest in the LEADS program.

The next LEADS intake opens January 15, 2020. Applications will be accepted until the budget is fully allocated.

Project category guidelines are subject to change and will be available once finalized in December 2019.

LEADS supports the implementation of best management practices (BMPs) on farms within the Lake Erie and Lake St Clair watersheds. Cost-share levels are determined by the risks identified through the completion of a Farmland Health Check-Up.
